This park includes figures of cowboys, miners, indians and soldiers all made of stone and other various materials composing “junk art”. The park was created by Fred Smith and began construction in 1950.

Additions were talked about and made up until Smith's death in 1976. After Smith's death a storm sadly knocked down more than half of the concrete figures. It was then restored by the Kohler Foundation and given to the county.

Admission to the park is free but donations are greatly appreciated. The site is run by the “Friends of Fred Smith” non-profit organization. This strange but exciting structure is located in Phillips, Wisconsin and contains 237 figures.
